If they can do it with reasonable quality then perhap they can become relevant again. Oh and fix their terrible smartphone battery life.

The basic technology of micro LED was around for long time in laboratory. But all failed to mass-produce it at reasonable cost. The micro LED "Wall" (146 inchs) of this MWC '18 from Samsung is good advance for very large screen like movie theater or professional use. But it is far from technology to mass produce normal TV sized (60-70 inch) screen at consumer price, let alone mobile device screen size like 10 inch or below. It will take at least 5 years to see any consumer grade micro LED TV at very high price, for main stream TV and mobile device, 10 years at least.

Of course, because the demo units are relentlessly displaying the same content, that's the cause of burn-in, ghosting or image retention on Organic LED screen. But in reality on a normal OLED phone user this issue is rarely happens.
That's why Samsung won't use OLED on their TV anymore (because TV and phone is different) instead they'll be ready to market microLED to consumers in August.
Did gsmarena really ignored sony's 2012 first gen microled,2016 2nd gen cledis?
And the 8k x 2k microled at ise 2018?

Apple is researching microled in-house (check news feed). They want to use a third-party manufacturer. You do the math.

I see some Galaxy S8 demo units in stores and they're already exhibiting some ghosting on the screen.

Anonymous, 23 Mar 2018960 fps is a joke anyway if you can only record in a split second instead of continue.How about the other phones that can't even do it for a nanosecond? Yeah it's not a joke for them. I get it, innovations are bad anyways so why bother?

A lot of people i know use galaxy s series and i had not heard them having problems with their phones’ display either.
Sony is getting abandoned by their competitors at their glacial pace of development. Been hearing about microled development in Sony for quite a while, but where is the product?
[deleted post]keep dreaming. sony will always be the last one to implement everything. sony mobile is the king of Late

Pablo, 22 Mar 2018AWESOME! now I'm gonna have Bootloops and image retention in a brand new microLED screen B)Old story. Stop trolling with your stupid comment!

The issue is LG could not make mobile screens as good as their big screens.
All phones that usevSamsung screen have 0 nits in black colors which leads to unmeasurable contrast.
Contrast of V30 is measurable, black is not zero nits.
If I am LG, I will get trademarks on names like MLED, MILED, Ultra LED, ULED, Super LED, SLED, UQLED, QULED and other names to prevent Samsung from doing name trick like QLED, which is actually a variation of old LCD tech, not proper LED. LG is real leader in TV sized display technology. Two thumbs up for LG!
